Famous Balloon Quote:
I have known today a magnificent intoxication. I have learnt how it feels to be a bird. I have flown. Yes I have flown. I am still astonished at it, still deeply moved.
— Le Figaro, 1908.
The basket of a balloon is commonly made of wicker, which is used because it is lightweight and very strong. The baskets are made in different sizes to match the size of the balloon. When modern ballooning was born in the 1960s, aluminum and fiberglas materials were tried, but they were not as flexible.
